How women perceived the world wars of this century is markedly different from the common perception of how these wars affected their lives. Drawing on a broad variety of sources, many long out of print, this anthology brings together the autobiographical accounts of both famous and ordinary women to provide a new view of the changing role of women as they experienced the sorrows, the terrors and the occasional joys of war in the twentieth century.
